Kouremetis wrote a charming and informative story that will make you want to grab a guitar and fly to Greece. Her prose is simple yet vivid, it's like walking into a room full of old friends." www.mariagrazia.tv

I highly recommend "Climbing St. Friday." You won’t want to put it down. In fact, you’ll get through it pretty quickly and realize you don’t want the story to end; you want to know what happens to her from there. Kouremetis injects humor throughout the tale of her “odyssey” from small town girl to how she felt herself change to a more “sophisticated” European lady - illustrating how much one can change in a 12-month period. It also serves to demonstrate how much impact the environment, people and events can have on you.
